PHP MV 12 Pistol; Croatian First Pistol

Discussion in 'General Military' started by K75RT, Oct 10, 2010.

  1. Picked up my new Croatian PHP MV 17 from my dealer; SOG dropped the ball on the second mag but it is in the works... This is a rare Croatian made pistol in 9X19mm; Made during the Croatian War 1991 to 1994, this pistol is made by the firm that ultimately makes the XD line of pistols today. The pistol is a marrying of the Walther P-38 and the Beretta 92. The trigger system is decidedly P-38 whereas the recoil spring is a single spring like the Beretta. This pistol is all steel and vet well finished.

    Frankenpistol.....what an ugly gun. This makes the Broomhandle Mauser look really good. But, I bet it shoots ok. Just my opinion.

    Not a bad buy if you can get parts to support them.
